FUFA has revealed the timeline for the club licensing process to streamline activities as well as ensure clubs have ample time for preparation.

The 2023/24 StarTimes Uganda Premier League will kick off on September 5th if all factors remain constant.

The country’s football governing body released the date and deadlines for other club licensing procedures to avoid the usual last-minute rush.

The process started on April 12th, with FUFA sharing the timeline to all clubs and will follow with the orientation meeting from May 15th-19th and then submission of the requirements in June.

Newly-promoted clubs to the top two divisions of both the male anf female leagues will be oriented on July 5th and then the evaluation a fortnight later.

League kickoff

As stated the UPL will kickoff on September 5th followed by Big League nine days later, then the FUFA Women Super and Elite leagues on September 24th and October 22nd, respectively.

The draft fixtures will come out on July 31st and the final on August 5th.

Player Registration

The current season was grossly affected by the lack or failure to meet the requirements, leading to Kyetume being demoted.

According to FUFA, Kyetume failed to present the minimum number of players to be registered.

“UPL & FBL Clubs must make final submission of all physical documents for all the Club Licensing Core Process minimum requirements and a minimum of eighteen players approved on the system of which two are goalkeepers,” the new measures read. The deadline for this is July 17th.
